Swope brothers named Distinguished Citizens

When it comes to serving the community, it’s all in the family for this year’s recipients of the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Lincoln Heritage Council Boy Scouts of America.

Bob and Carl Swope, both owners of car dealerships in Elizabethtown, said service was instilled in them by their grandfather, father and mother.

“I didn’t know I had a choice,” Carl said, laughing. “Of course, we had a choice, but it was instilled by example early on.”
